Commonly asked questions:

Q: Can faculty submit posters without residents and students?
A: Yes, absolutely! However, awards are only given to best student and resident/fellow abstracts. 

Q: Does it need to be original clinical research, or are literature reviews also an accepted submission?
A: Original research.

Q: Can I submit an abstract that has already been presented at other academic conferences?
A: This is allowed, if the conference the research was presented at was a local conference. If it was already presented regionally or nationally, then no, it may not be re-submitted.
